To: Shayna Willis <email@example.com>
Friday, March 7th from 9:00am-11:00am at the BGC Activity Center (map)
Need some help to get you through the rest of the year? Coaching and mentoring sessions focus on sharing best practices and brainstorming solutions to common problems. This week's focus is on creating action plans for challenging students.
Come and learn about the root causes of challenging behaviors, how to address them when they crop up and practical ways to advocate for your students. Participants in this session will learn from each other and from our expert trainers, Twila Simmons-Walker and Shayna Willis, about what works and what doesn't in working with at risk youth. Bring us your most challenging cases and leave with an action plan ready for use.
Twila Simmons-Walker is the Manager of Scholastic Outreach and Education for the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN), where she has worked as an informal educator for the past 12 years. Twila has worked with students as a mentor, environmental educator, and workplace supervisor. She is a certified elementary and secondary school counselor, and in her free time enjoys working with families as a special education advocate, and on behalf of students with challenging behavior. Twila’s passion for inclusive education is complimented by her experiences as the parent of a child with a pervasive developmental disorder.
